Celtic could cut Musonda's loan deal short this summer

  Celtic could cut Musonda's loan deal short this summer Charly Musonda could be set for an early Chelsea return this summer, according to Brendan Rodgers. As reported by the Daily Record, the Scottish champions could cut the Belgian’s loan deal short after the winger has failed to break into the Celtic squad. “They may well do. There is an agreement in place which is fairly relaxed. He’s probably not played as much as he would have liked, but there are obviously reasons for that. I’ll always bring players to develop them and, in the main, it’s normally what happens when they are in my environment.” Musonda joined Celtic on loan in January on an 18-month deal that would run through until the end of next season. Chelsea are said to be unhappy with the amount of game time the Belgian has received since joining the club, starting just three games. Musonda is highly thought of at Stamford Bridge and the loan deal was set up to give the attacker regular first-team football after failing to secure a move in the previous summer window. Antonio Conte had been unable to offer the player regular first-team football at Stamford Bridge. With a new manager expected to join Chelsea this summer, Musonda may look to return to his parent club and make a claim for the first-team squad.

Brendan Rodgers has admitted Chelsea could cut short Charly Musonda ’s loan spell at Celtic . The Belgian has been restricted to three starts and five substitute outings since joining in January on an 18-month deal.

According to Goal, Chelsea youngster Charly Musonda will be recalled from Scottish champions, Celtic.

The 21-year-old originally signed a deal to stay at Celtic for 18 months but has had the deal shortened due to the lack of playing time that Musonda has had at the club.

The young Belgian only started three games since joining on loan back in January.

Musonda was not in Celtics last matchday squad due to a shoulder injury according to boss Brendan Rodgers:

“Charly hurt his shoulder in the week when he was away. He has gone back to Chelsea to get treatment on that. So like I say, he may or may not feature between now and the end of the season.”

“But he is obviously a Chelsea player, so they want to look at him to make sure he is okay.”

Musonda put a heartfelt post on his Instagram account thanking Celtic for the opportunity of playing for the club.


He also made his Stamford Bridge debut and scored his first goal for the club this season.

Celtic ready to let Jack Aitchison join Dundee United on loan .
Celtic look set to loan Jack Aitchison to Dundee United for the entirety of the 2018/19 season, according to reports. The 18-year-old didn’t make a single appearance for the first team last season and Celtic are keen for him to play regular football, hence why a loan move makes sense. Aitchison made his first team debut for Celtic back in May 2016, becoming the youngest player ever to represent the Scottish giants in a competitive game, aged 16 years and 71 days. He actually scored with his first touch in the match to round off a comprehensive 7-0 win over Motherwell, meaning he also holds the record of being the club’s youngest ever scorer. Since then, he’s only featured in the first team on two occasions and Celtic believe that he needs a loan move in order to develop, as his chances of displacing the likes of Moussa Dembele, Leigh Griffiths and potentially Odsonne Edouard look very slim. Celtic hope that a year of playing competitive Championship football could aid Aitchison’s development more than if he stayed with the club’s youth set up.
